2009 Phillip Island 125cc Qualifying Practice Result - Upstart Tops The Timesheets

Result of qualifying for the 125cc class at Phillip Island:

Pol Espargaro will start the race from pole on Sunday, the Derbi rider enjoying a new lease of life since his first win at Indianapolis. The Spaniard set his time under testing conditions - sun, wind and a cool track - but came out ahead of Nicolas Terol and championship leader Julian Simon, who should be able to clinch the title with a front row start. Simone Corse completes the front row, leaving Bradley Smith heading up row 2 on the grid. 

De Graaf's Danny Webb suffered a nasty crash early in the session, leaving him little track time to improve his grid position, and will start from 21st. Scott Redding will start at the other end of the 6th row. American Cameron Beaubier starts on the row ahead of the two Brits, having set the 18th fastest time.
